russia today and that trigger is the continued destabilization inside ukraine to the point that it would impede crucial elections in ukraine set for may 25th, about three weeks from now. and as the u.s. sets this new red line, the u.s. and russia are moving further apart in their views of the situation. the u.s. is blaming russia. russia blaming the u.s. today you have the president saying that clearly russia must be involved and they must be peaceful if they have missiles to shoot down helicopters. meanwhile, russia's ambassador to the u.n. accusing the u.s. of orchestrating the violence. he made the point that every time a u.s. official visits kiev, that the violence on the ground increases. you also have western officials taking a more darkly humorous look at the events tweeting ukrainian helicopters shot down in slovyansk, some elderly ladies must have bought rpgs at the grocery store, i assume. this is dark humor. they have a way to push back against the russian propaganda and it's really enflaming the ground and it's to support the paramilitaries and we're seeing the effects right

point for the next round of sanctions against russia for this crisis ongoing in ukraine. until now, president obama has set the bar at a russian invasion for ukraine here. but after meeting today with german chancellor angela merkel, he moved it up a tad because the president here is hanging on to a possibility of a diplomatic resolution. and angela merkel agreed with that. although he punctuated that with a very big "but" today. president obama speaking at a news conference with the german chancellor a little more than an hour ago. >> but as angela merkel said, if, in fact, we see the disruptions and destabilization continuing so severely that it impedes elections on may 25th, we will not have a choice but to move forward with additional more severe sanctions. and the consultations have been taking place over the course of the last several weeks about what exactly those would look like and would apply to a range of sectors. the goal is not to punish russia, the goal is to give them an incentive to choose the better course, and that is to resolve these issues diplomatically. and i
